On TV this weekend, Nov. 30-Dec. 2

On TV this week

FRIDAY

Nikita, 8 p.m., CW A rogue agent becomes the president of Uzbekistan and threatens the life of the U.S. president. That's so unbelievable; a woman as U.S. president? Yeah, tell us another one.

Ghost Adventures, 9 p.m., Travel The trio visit a variety of ghost towns to see if their name is literally true. Hint: It isn't.

Haven, 10 p.m., SyFy Audrey learns of a prophecy that she's going to disappear within days. Unless she can convince George to kiss Lorraine at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance, that is.

The Dead Files, 10 p.m., Travel A West Virginia mother of eight fears for her children's safety after witnessing strange activity in her home. Don't worry, that's just the kids' father.

SATURDAY

A Bride for Christmas, 8 p.m., Hallmark A bride leaves her fiance at the altar and swears off men, then meets a man who is in a bet to get a woman to marry him in four weeks. Irresistible force, meet immovable object.

Made in Jersey, 8 p.m., CBS If you're home watching network TV on a Saturday night, you deserve to watch a show that's already been canceled.

SUNDAY

SEASON FINALE Boardwalk Empire, 9 p.m., HBO Nucky may or may not get the better of Gyp as the season comes to a close, but we can all agree on one thing: Paz de la Huerta is not missed.

MIDSEASON FINALE The Walking Dead, 9 p.m., AMC The first half of Season 3 has been light years better than the first half of Season 2, so knowing that the Woodbury vs. prison story arc is only getting warmed up makes the holiday hiatus bearable. Besides, we can always hear Michael Rooker act like a badass in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 while we wait.

SERIES PREMIERE Be the Boss, 10 p.m., A&E The Undercover Boss people decide to make a show about schlubs working for companies getting to battle each other for control of a franchise. Because just working for a soul-crushing conglomerate isn't enough, you have to make it an entire career.
